Version 3.x Programs Are Here!

Districts and schools with SAM Servers hosted by HMH will notice their programs have been upgraded to version 3.x. Documentation has also been upgraded.


Districts and schools hosting their own local SAM Servers may now download their version 3.x programs. HMH is discontinuing shipping installation DVDs.


Note that SAM version 3.x will deactivate older versions of SAM and SAM Suite programs. These programs will need to be upgraded to version 3.x to work with SAM version 3.x. Any existing installation running SAM version 2.x may be upgraded directly to version 3.x. Other programs will automatically reactivate after installing the 3.x version.


For instructions on downloading the version 3.x installers, see the Installation Guides for your programs or contact Product Support at 1-800-283-5974.

Important Notice for Teachers and Administrators Using READ 180 Next Generation & System 44 Next Generation on Chromebooks

Students using READ 180 or System 44 Next Generation on Chromebooks and desktops using Chrome OS 60 or later and connected to a locally-installed district or school server will be unable to move past the microphone check or record activities in these programs. Contact the Help Desk at 1-800-283-5974 if your students are stuck in the program as a result of this bug. (Note that Chromebooks using earlier versions of Chrome OS are not affected.)

HMH is working on a solution to this issue and will release an update as soon as it is available.
